Dubya Bush odd choice to save Flake’s political ass

Anti-Trump Bush stumps for anti-Trump Flake

Bush fatigue is a chronic malady afflicting many Republicans, reaching epidemic proportions in the border state of Arizona where the illegal invasion is not a back burner issue. After the presidencies of Poppy (Bush 41)  and Dubya  (Bush 43), brother Jeb, the establishment pick, who had no chance of winning the 2016 presidential primary, spent a staggering $150 million before he withdrew. 

Donald Trump was elected as an anti-establishment populist, who responded to the concerns of average Americans. In his short time in office, he has made excellent cabinet appointments, nominated an originalist in the mode of former Justice Antonin Scalia to the U.S. Supreme Court, is keeping jobs in America, working to repeal and replace Obamacare, and build a border wall. According to this morning’s Rasmussen Presidential Tracking poll, 80% of Republicans agree with the job he’s doing. 

Arizona’s two U.S. Senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake were vocal opponents of candidate Trump. McCain withdrew his momentary support after Trump was the Republican nominee. Flake never gave an endorsement, opting instead to make the rounds of broadcast networks telling interviewers he would not only not endorse Trump — he would also not vote for him. McCain took the same approach and has continued to be a leading antagonist.

Flake, reported by AZ’s Channel 3  to be the most unpopular senator in the nation, faces the voters in 2018. His arrogance is only exceeded by his lack of trustworthiness. Even the daily newspaper which has forgiven him his politically expedient transgressions, had to acknowledge he’s in trouble.

Under the circumstances and with an election around the corner, it would seem reasonable that Jeff Flake would go to the mat finding someone who could bring voters to his shaky campaign. But the closed-to-the-public exclusive dinner soiree April 11, at a Paradise Valley mansion headlines George W. Bush — another Republicrat who refused to vote for President Trump.

Great strategy, Jeff.  We hope you keep it up. We support principled conservative  Dr. Kelli Ward.

    Be it Kelli Ward or whomever runs against Flake, that person should get out there now and spotlight Flake’s mistakes such as working tirelessly with Obama on opening ties to Communist Cuba. It’s turning out to be a joke – on us. Cuba still hates us and works against us. American and Delta airlines are cutting back flights to Cuba as are several smaller airlines.

    Flakes arrogant behavior regarding Trump has been disgraceful. He never once criticized Obama but is happy to hurt Trump every chance he gets. If every Arizonan who voted for Trump will vote for the one who runs against Flake in the primary – we could be rid of him. He doesn’t deserve to be called a Republican, and certainly not a ‘conservative’ which he’ll call himself to be elected. Don’t fall for it. He has done NOTHING to stop illegal immigration. He’s like Obama – if his lips are moving, he’s lying.

    There is a major disconnect between the GOP elites and conservatives. That explains why Donald Trump is in the White House and Jeb and none of the 16 other primary candidates are.

    I attended Trump’s first rally in Arizona, not as a supporter but as a curious voter.Thousands of people stood in the longest kine I’ve ever seen in the intense summer heat to get into the Convention Center. I knew that day that something very different was taking place. The AZ GOP chairman, McCain and Flake were nowhere to be seen, but thousands of Arizona voters were. McCain and Flake don’t represent me. I intend to vote against Flake.

    I re-registered as an Independent the following week. I am a Trump voter, and so far a very satisfied one.

    Now McDonald’s is attacking President Trump. Boycott their unhealthy “food.” Drive up to the take out window and tell them why!

      Read that and it appears it is another one of he far left hacking into a business to show how “cool” they are.

      • Kathy says:

        Don’t count on that – Robert Gibbs who is an executive at McDonalds in communications worked for Obama.

  4. Kathy says:

    Bush is a globalist, hence Flake is a globalist. Birds of feather flock together. Remember the Bush Peso that was designed because of love for illegals. Neither are for We the People – they are only out for themselves. Will AZ vote Flake out???

  5. Jakesez says:

    I am considering leaving the republican party as well. Only problem is I want to vote against may establishment republicans. Will not vote for Flake no matter what happens.

    • William Heuisler says:

      Jake, don’t quit the Repubs; we need your vote in the Primary. Who ever wins the primary will probably beat the Democrat. You’re not the only one who dislikes both parties equally, but Republicans outnumber Dems in AZ. We’re stuck.

      • Kathy says:

        Exactly – that’s the only reason I stay because of the primaries. We do not want open primaries because leftist always take them over!

      • LD 28 Voter says:

        Unless something has changed recently, In 1998 Prop 103 was passed allowing Independents and No Party Affiliation Registered voters to vote in all primaries (except for President) in Arizona.
        (Article VII Section 10.

      • Jakesez says:

        I have heard that there is talk back in the mid-west of an Independent Conservative Party forming. If anyone else has any information, would like to hear what the rumors are.

    • PC and State Committeeman says:

      Don’t leave the Party that is why they are in the R Party to drive out the good people and merely give the illusion that we have a two Party system knowing that when a Dem is in office the agenda goes full steam ahead when a Rino is in office nothing happens to stop anything and at the last of the term they go full steam ahead with all kinda s—! Remember Tarp Bush pulled that one on us. STAY AND FIGHT FOR THE “CONSERVATIVE” VALUES we once had!! Puhleeze!! Don’t let them win for their goal of global governance.

    Rand Paul states that McCain is an example of why we need term limits. Keep up with the barbs, Rand!

    Meanwhile, McDonald’s, which serves questionable meat and employs questionable people, had this on their Twitter account today:

    ‘@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a president and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tony hands.’

    McDonald’s is using the tired, lame excuse that their Twitter account was hacked.
    But they did NOT issue an apology to our Commander-in-Chief Donald J. Trump.

    McDonald’s is so bad, they need a health dept. inspector at every one of their joints. 24/7/365.

    You Deserve a Break Today—-Stay Away from MickeyD’s

    By the way, Maricopa County Health Dept does a good job with their inspections. You should check out their reports, which are public record. A few years ago, their inspectors were being pressured by politicians to be kinder and gentler with their inspections.
    That’s just another example of what politicians really think about
    John Q. Public.

    Senator Rand Paul Responds To Senator McCain Saying: “He Works for Vladimir Putin”…

  8. Conservative Since Birth says:

    McCain is very worried about Montenegro. He long ago forgot about Arizona, which makes one wonder why they (not me) continue to elect him.

    Old men are given a lot of latitude but McCain has squandered any good will he may have had with new levels of nasty. When he does finally go away, he´ll be forgotten in an instant.

    Rand Paul is right about Ryan’s Obamacare Jr. bill and is right about McCain. It’s time to lock him up – against his will if necessary.

  9. State Delegate says:

    Did you see the guest list for this Flake fundraiser?? Beginning with Jon Kyl and a contingent of reliable McCain funders, it’s not a group any self respecting conservative would want to hang out with. But the HUGE feature is the price of admission. Co-chairs and members of the host committee who give $50,000 and $25,000 can attend a dinner with former President Bush.. And for a mere $10,000 more, you are able to have your photo taken with the Flake, Bosh and Kyl. It’d be a bargain at twice the price!
